South Williamsport Area School District Course Plan Template Teacher: Mike Pearson School Year:2014-2015 Course: General Science Intended Grade Level: 6 Course Summary: The sixth grade year of study is a three part fundamental introduction into 3 specific spectrums of science. A. Matter/Chemistry B. Physical Science C. Earth and Space Course Outcomes: By the end of the course, students will know: The Scientific Method of Learning, The fundamental concepts of each discipline listed above including chemical equations, chemical reactions, in depth exploration into the periodic table of elements, atoms and atomic structure, Newton’s laws of motion, Gravity, Friction, Speed and Acceleration, Earth’s Layers, Earth’s Composition, Water as a resource, Tectonic Plates and Movement, Solar System, Galaxies, and the Universe with respect to Earth’s place in each of those models and finally, understand and be able to differentiate theory versus facts with an attitude of testing and ability to reevaluate evidence By the end of the course, students will be able to: Show not only theoretical background of knowledge of matter, atomic structure, reactions, elements but also be able to demonstrate relevant interactions through experimentation. Apply and master fundamental laws of motion, gravity, and friction here on Earth while being able to apply laws to relevant experimentation, and understand the fundamentals of Earth’s structure, resources, and place in our solar system, galaxy, and universe Standards Targeted1 PA Common Core Grade level 6 Science and Technology Units of Study Units Topic Primary Learning Outcome Matter – Chapter 9 To understand, experiment, and apply physical properties, elements, periodic table of elements ,mixtures, solutions, and compounds, states of matter and changes in states, water Chemistry – Chapter 10 To understand, experiment, create, and apply concepts of chemical changes, chemical reactions, periodic table of elements, Carbon specifically, atoms, atomic energy, and radiation Physical Science – Chapter 11 To investigate and apply forces and motion, work, energy Simple machines, laws of motion, gravity, and friction 1 Indicate primary Standards emphasis: - PA Core - Math / ELA / Science & Technology / History & Social Studies - National Content Standards (Name and Type) - Industry Recognized Standards (Name and Type) Revised - May 9, 2017 Course plans represent district curriculum. They will be posted to building web pages accessible to the school and community.
